We’ve got pro tips on how to make the most of your DBS Visa Debit card and save big on your festive buys!
With the upcoming festivities, we have more reason than ever to get our shopping on. And if you miss the perks of international shopping, we have good news for you! Nope, we still can’t travel. But here are ways to enjoy savings while online shopping from international stores, thanks to the DBS Visa Debit Card. This handy travel card isn’t just useful abroad, but equally rewarding to whip out when you’re shopping online from overseas websites, too!
Shop in foreign currency
Pro tip: Don’t switch to the Singapore site when you’re browsing an overseas store. While it might be intuitive and easier, stick to the original currency (even if it means you have to convert the price separately), to get 2% cashback on your spending. Plus, this saves you from paying the Dynamic Currency Conversion fee, which is tagged to your purchases if you cart out in SGD.
Trawl the web for codes
Keep an eye out for discount codes online – you can expect plenty of those especially during this pre-Christmas time. All you have to do is pay a little extra attention when you’re scrolling through your social media feeds, and you can save a good amount on your festive buys!
Fuss-free currency exchange
Link your DBS Visa Debit Card to your My Account (formerly known as the DBS Multi-Currency Account) for more benefits! This lets you pre-purchase currencies at your preferred rates (which you can use at a later date), with no additional administrative fees or foreign exchange conversion fees.
Wanna save money while shopping online from international stores? You can do it anywhere online for your international purchases with the DBS Visa Debit Card. To activate the cashback, just spend a minimum of S$500 on the DBS Visa Debit Card and keep cash withdrawals to S$400 and below in the same month. Visit DBS for more information about the DBS Visa Debit Card.
